with Robert Fergusson & Donna Crouch

For well over two decades now, Hillsong Church favourites Robert Fergusson and Donna Crouch have been entrusted by Pastors Brian & Bobbie Houston with the Hillsong platform – not only to teach the congregation, but hundreds of our staff and leaders in Campuses around the world, with the spirit and principles that are synonymous with the sound of our ‘house’.

This November, for the first time ever, we’re bringing a one-day Platform Masterclass to the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Our goal is to equip church leaders with a deeper understanding of how you and your team can communicate in a way that reaches to all people and influences them to grow in their relationship with God and, in turn, radically impact their world.




Wednesday, 6th November

Curate Church

10am – 3pm



Thursday, 7th November
